For Sale: One manor house, 22 neighbouring house, the local shop, a blacksmiths and your very own cricket club.
The tiny village of Linkenholt in Hampshire - population 40 - has gone on the market and this slice of quintessential English life could be yours, if you have a spare £25m.

The ring-fenced farming and sporting estate, in ancient landscape between Andover and Newbury in the North Wessex Downs AONB, comprises a manor house, 1,542 acres of arable and grassland, 425 acres of woodland and the entire village of Linkenholt. Bought in 1964 by the late Herbert Blagrave, the estate is being sold as a whole on behalf of the Herbert and Peter Blagrave Charitable Trust, set up by Mr Blagrave in 1978 for the benefit of the Injured Jockeys Fund and several children’s charities.
